The period decorative features on this home in London, E17, were showing their age due to structural issues causing cracked brickwork and stonework. The structural movement had exacerbated the deterioration of the paintwork leaving the beautiful, ornate stonework looking shabby.
There was significant cracking above the stone entrance arch in both the external brickwork and the internal walls.
The bay window had visibly shifted and caused cracks in the external brickwork as well as in the interior walls. The supporting columns and cills had become distorted.
These are common problems in such Victorian / Edwardian properties and are usually the result of ageing and inadequate restraining in the original building methods.
The AWT team also had to be prepared in case the masonry components weren’t solid masonry but simply a thin facade covering a timber frame.
